Aerial Production – Terms & Conditions
2. All AirVu Cayman Limited Small Unmanned Aircraft (SUA) pilots are professionally trained and certified by the Unmanned Vehicle University or equivalent.

The following list of SUA Aerial Work regulations should be considered for all SUA missions for which you have a requirement for. This is not an exhaustive list and we can obtain exemptions on a job-specific basis depending on the project.
2. As per the AirVu Cayman Limited General Operating Manual certified by the CAACI, SUA missions should be conducted;
a) During daylight hours (“day” means a continuous period of 24 hours beginning at midnight Co-ordinated Universal Time; or for the purposes of articles 41 and 70 [AN(OT)O 2013], the time from half an hour before sunrise until half an hour after sunset (both times exclusive), sunset and sunrise being determined at surface level;
In dry weather;
b) With a wind speed no greater than 20mph;

a) Over or within 150 meters of a congested area;
b) Over or within 150 meters of an organized open-air assembly of more than 1000 persons;
c) Within 50 meters of any vessel, vehicle or structure which is not in control of the person in charge of the aircraft.
If you do have a project that falls outside of these parameters, please get in contact. As long as we can show it to be safe, we can generally get exemptions to work outside of these parameters, for example we can fly at night, or in built up areas.
Application of these terms
4. These terms and conditions shall apply in respect of all goods and services we supply to you at your request whether specified overleaf or otherwise (“the Service”). Except to the extent that these terms and conditions are varied by mutual consent they, together with the brief and quotation, shall constitute the entire agreement. You agree that, in entering into this agreement, you shall not rely on any representation or understanding, whether oral or in writing, which is not included or referred to in these terms and conditions.
5. The Service shall be delivered to you in accordance with the brief agreed at the outset of the project either through concept meetings or in written proposals.
6. We shall produce one master .MP4 copy of the production only for your use. Should you require further copies an additional charge will apply. A separate quotation will be issued for the production of additional copies.
7. Times given for delivery of the Service are estimates only and time shall not be of the essence.
Acceptance and Changes
8. The Service shall be made available for acceptance at agreed stages. At each agreed stage changes to the Service shall only be permitted to the extent that such changes are consistent with the brief. Beyond completion of the final Master we will allow the ‘Three Hour Rule’. By this it is meant that any change or alteration to the final Master that we reasonably deem will take less than three hours will not be charged.
9. Other than as stated in clause 5 above, changes to the brief or otherwise that result in additional work being carried out will be chargeable at the relevant daily rate; this shall include the following:
a) Changes which result from inaccurate or misleading information having been supplied by you in preparation of the brief.
b) Changes which result from your failure to obtain consent from any third parties or employees necessary in the delivery of the Service.
c) Changes which result from a significant change to the brief.
d) Additions to the original brief in the form of extra variations or edits of the originally planned piece such as shorter ‘highlights’ edits or specific web versions that are not agreed at the outset.

12. AirVu’s SUA Pilots will not be subject to coercion by any AirVu managers or customers. The SUA Pilot’s good judgment shall prevail at all times. If anyone determines that the SUA Pilot’s decision or conduct of the flight is not proper, they shall abide by the SUA Pilot’s decision and direct complaints and/or comments to the Accountable Manager insofar as such decisions shall not affect the safety of the flight.
